About Dr. Nelson

Raised in New York, I came to Kentucky in 1975 to study Microbiology at the University of Kentucky, in Lexington, where I met my wife Donna. We now have two children and a grandchild. When I can, I enjoy scuba diving.

While I consider myself a clinician, I have lectured at the DMD, graduate and postgrad levels; and performed some unpublished research in the areas of prostaglandins and laser tissue welding. I was among the first in this state to employ guided tissue regeneration techniques - now considered a staple practice in Periodontics. Today, I am even more excited to offer precise, minimally invasive LANAP(r) surgery.
